Award-winning comedian Stewart Lee is coming to the Derngate in Northampton next week.

He is testing out material for his BBC series Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.

The show has won Baftas and Comedy Awards and Lee is currently touring the country testing his material.

In his latest show, called A Room With A Stew, he is exploring new subjects and cutting and adding sections to the show as he goes, giving audiences a chance to see the material before it goes to air in the TV show.

Lee began his career in comedy when he was 20 and won the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year award in 1990.

He featured in radio comedy shows Fist of Fun and On The Hour with Steve Coogan and Chris Morris and he also did four series for BBC2 with Richard Herring.

Stewart Lee comes to the Derngate stage on Friday , May 1, at 8pm.

Tickets are priced at £22, and can be booked by calling box office on 01604 624811 or visiting www.royalandderngate.co.uk. This performance is recommended for ages 14 and above.
